The season after 2009 turned to be a proving point for both Kohli and India. He got regular chances at the No.3 slot in the ODI team and he made the position on his own with a string of consistent scores. He became the first Indian to score a century on World Cup debut when he smashed a ton against Bangladesh in India's first game of the 2011 World Cup.
Team India didn't enjoy a great year after the World Cup, but Kohli's career graph went upwards rapidly in the 2011-12 season. He made his test debut in West Indies in July 2011, but was dropped for the England Tests that followed after he had a poor debut series.
While his Test career might have had its ups and downs, his ODI graph only has one direction which is skywards.
Kohli bears a mature head on his youthful shoulders. Known to be quite an aggressive batsman, he has a sound technique that makes him judge the length of the ball sooner than generally others. He is similarly skilled against pace, spin and never looks ungainly at the crease. With the affection for utilizing his feet against the spinners, he is known to be quite destructive in case of temperament. Kohli has had high standards put on him from the minute he picked up a bat and has given signs that he is well while in transit to satisfying those forecasts.
